PostSubject: My new setup in China   Tue Dec 14, 2010 1:40 pm

Just thought I'd share some pics of a tank I set up a few months ago. I have two juvenile albino bristlenoses, which have a blue ring around their eye, dunno if this is just standard or if they're a special kind?

It's heavily planted, and just has some simple guppies and cardinals in it. Its on my windowsill, and I leave the curtains open all day, so it gets the full glare of this south China sun! I inject co2 via DIY yeast culture, and don't bother trimming it down...just letting it go wild.

Tank shot:


Detail, left to right:




and most importantly, the BN:




The best part is the price! Total cost including plants, tank,fish lights, filter etc = 450rmb (about £40/$70)

If I had my own car here, I would definitely get carried away...the aquarium fish market here is ridiculous. I will make a separate post about the place when I get the chance.

nice looking tank there Smile

also a lovely L144 long fin.... can you get L144 long fin... lol?

plenty of plants in the tank , and plenty of caves too....

any algae growth from having the tank in the window should be easily controlled by the bristlenose in the tank Smile

Lovely. I love heavy planting and am not too successful with it.
How long is your tank? Looking at the watch I would guess about 3 '
